Mission Statement

Meridian Township exists to create a sustainable community through the most effective use of available resources that achieve the highest quality of life. The highest quality of life encompasses sustained or enhanced: 1. Natural environment, 2. Health and safety, 3. Prosperity, 4. Cultural Heritage, and 5. Diversity. I also work with two nonprofits in the region: www.localfirstmidmi.org and www.buildingtwentyone.org


The community of Meridian Township lies along the eastern border of East Lansing and the campus of Michigan State University and in close proximity to the Michigan State Capitol.

Centrally located at the palm of Michigan’s hand, Meridian Township has nestled within its borders two healthy and active communities; Haslett and Okemos. A minor percentage of the township is comprised of the City of East Lansing and Williamston mailing addresses. Founded in the early 1800’s along the Grand River as a trading point, Meridian Township residents enjoy quiet, safe, and well maintained connected neighborhoods with plenty of parks, pathways, and recreational opportunities for visitors and families to enjoy. With natural beauty on roads, interurban pathways, and vibrant business districts, Meridian Township is a great atmosphere for families, seniors, and young professionals.

A destination for raising families since before the turn of the century, Meridian Township offers an array of quiet neighborhoods and an abundance of natural beauty with four seasons of outdoor activities. With a park system that has over 906 acres of park land in 28 parks and natural areas, Meridian Township welcomes visitors from surrounding areas to its parks and to the largest lake within 25 miles of the State Capital, Lake Lansing.
